I'm fairly happy with the way my "wrapping corner" turned out. I have a rectangular oak table in the corner which I use for sewing, when not used for that purpose I store my sewing machine under the table leaving the surface of the table free for gift wrapping.
I wanted to create some sort of gadget that would allow the wrapping paper to hang on the wall so it wouldn't get smushed and destroyed. I purchased some dowels at the home improvement store, wrapped some sisal twine around the ends and then hung the twine from some nails. Voila, instant wall storage for the paper.
